I just have to vent and get this off my chest. I'm just fuming.
I was riding home down some residential streets near a high school. As I approach and take my right turn some stupid teens, well I'm 19 so I guess some stupid high school teens, start calling out "You're not a car" repeatedly. And I just came to a screeching stop .
Now I'm a gentle quiet guy in real life and it takes a lot to get me worked up but I will not take that which treats me as a second class citizen, denial of my rights. Since getting into cycling I haven't encountered people yelling stuff at me. Well RAGE!!!!! I turned around and rolled up to these schmucks, got off my bike and asked "Do you have something to say to me?" This may not seem like much but I'm some built 6'5" guy, with a deep voice, towering over some shrimp 16-17 year olds. I then barked "Do you mind reading the f-ing law before you say stupid ****?"
They just walked away with some stupid smirks on their faces . This was going through my head as I rode around the neighbor hood fuming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPHuE5pDlEs
And I know these idiots are not worth my time and energy but AHHHHHHH SO ANGRY
part of me wants to be back there just to say " I know I'm not a car, what are you?"
